Alfresco [Dining] - Italy
EVENT TEMPORARILY POSTPONED
Alfresco [Dining] - Italy Wine Tasting
Friday, 17th July 2020 (7:30pm-9:00pm)
Imagine a world without pasta and Italian wines?
How about an Alfresco version of ‘Fish & Chips’, or ‘Tikka Masala’ as your only options?
If you’re going to venture outside onto the ‘decking’ for your lunch or evening meals this summer, you need to do it properly.
It’s got to be stylish, it must be laid back, and it has to be ITALIAN, 100%!
You can check out all the best recipes online to use for the food, but which wines to use?
If you’re of a ‘certain age’, then Lambrusco Rosso or Chianti ‘Fiasco’ flasks will probably be your first thought. Perfect for a retro 70’s night, but not for the 21st century!
A lot younger? How about Pinot Grigio & Prosecco? So last decade!
Holidays to Italy have been popular for a long time now, so the cuisine from the region needs to be matched with the right wine to bring back the memories that you want to recreate.
These days, you’re more likely to discover the likes of Nero d’Avola & Carricante varieties from Sicily; rich Primitivo & Appassimento reds from Puglia; Pecorino whites along with Montepulciano reds from Abruzzo; Lugana & Bardolino from Lake Garda… the list seems endless.
If you’re on the adventurous side, you’ve probably even had Sardinian Cannonau (Grenache) & Vermentino, or the hand-made, volcanic wines from Mt. Etna.
Been to Naples? Wine with your pizza? Aglianico, or, maybe Falanghina?
If your holiday was a winter, skiing trip to the Alps/Dolomites, you might well have come across the rarely seen Valle d’Aosta whites, or the Nebbiolo reds from Valtellina. A treat, indeed.
Bubbly, from Franciacorta in Lombardy, is something to try if your taste is more Champagne than Prosecco.
The classics are still there, but there’s so much diversity of wine to sample throughout the length and breadth of Italy that we might need to run at least two tasting nights.
Come and taste a (small) selection of something different from Italy at #FraziersWineStudio #Solihull
… but try not to fall off the scooter!
